Lighter sesame and peanut noodles

Submitted by: EMI101908

Introduction

Craving chinese? Make this and save a boatload of fat and calories. Feeds a crowd or stores really well in the fridge. Travels well, and is super flexible (reduce the soy for a lower sodium recipe, add shrimp or another meat, etc.) Met with RAVE reviews at a recent BBQ. Craving chinese?

Ingredients

    1lb Spaghetti (1 full box)
    1.5 cup broccoli, chopped
    1 medium carrot, shredded
    1 medium red pepper, sliced
    1 medium vadalia onion, sliced thinly
    1.25 cup snap peas, strings removed

    Sauce:
    1/2 cup peanut butter (use a little less than a full half cup, recipe is calculated at .4 cup because I didn't have enough!)
    3 tbsp soy sauce
    3 tbsp seasoned rice wine vinegar
    1 tbsp sesame oil
    1 tsp hot sauce (like srirachi)
    1 tsp packed brown sugar

Directions

Whisk all sauce ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.

Cook pasta just past al dente (11-12 minutes), rinse and drain well. Leave in the colander to cool while prepping veggies.

Cut all veggies, briefly blanching the broccoli, snap peas and onions. Leave peppers and carrots raw.

If you're preparing in advance, store these three elements separately (pasta, veggies, sauce) in tupperware. Toss together just before serving and serve cold.

If you're eating right away, just toss all ingredients together in the bowl you used for the sauce. Serve room temp or chill for an hour before serving.
